I wanted to add to my assortment of paper flowers but wanted a slightly different type of flower. I wanted the outer petals to be better aligned.
So I decided the best way to do that was to break up the single roll into multiple rolls.
I quite like my new design and wanted to share it with everyone. I’ve included 9 varietals in this design pack.

Cardstock – Not all cardstock is created equal. Some of them have white cores and doesn’t look good with intricate designs or rolled flowers.
- Assorted Starter Pack – Basic assorted colors, great starter pack, perfect weight for most papercraft projects
- Cricut Joy Insert Card Packs – You don’t have to use these with the Cricut Joy, they are nice material kids for cardmaking.
- Cardstock Warehouse Brand on Amazon – I love the quality of all the matte-colored cardstock with Cardstock Warehouse. It is my go-to brand for individual matte colors that I might need
- Poptone Assorted Variety Pack – This is the perfect peppy assortment of colors of heavy cardstock. It’s a heavy cardstock assortment with colors I actually use frequently for cardmaking.
- Seasonal Assorted Variety Pack – This is a slight variation on the Poptone assortment and has a quite few neutrals that complement almost any accent color.
- Stardream Metallics Line – For paper crafts, the Stardream line is the go-to for a metallic shimmer finish. It is the perfect sheen to make any project pop. The core is also colored is which hard to find for metallic paper.
Glue – I like to use either a polymer based glue or a hot glue gun:
- Art Glitter Glue – All-purpose non-toxic polymer glue with a fine tip, dries fast with minimal paper warping.
- Hot Glue Gun – My favorite cordless hot glue gun, an essential for fast petal to petal gluing
Quick Tutorial on How to Assemble Semi-Rolled Paper Flower
Step 1: Cut your template pieces.
Step 2: Glue the tabs together and curl the petals. I like curling some of the inner layer inwards while curling the outer layer outwards.
Step 3: Assemble each layer onto the base circle.
Step 4: Do the same with the inner rolled flower. I did not include an image because it differs for each flower. For some of the longer petal flowers, I thought it looks better with just a dot.
